This morning in Huntington at 6:00AM it’s currently a balmy 50 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 87%, dewpoint 46, barometric pressure 29.78” and falling. Yesterday’s high was a lovely 62, and the overnight low was 50.
This early morning’s clear skies will give way shortly to clouds and rain as morning radar imagery shows a band of showers currently over the central Adirondacks out ahead of an advancing cold front. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies with numerous rain showers mainly this morning. Highs will be in the lower 50s with temperature falling into the lower 40s this afternoon. Winds will be out of the south at around 10 mph, becoming westerly this afternoon. Chance of rain is 60%. Tonight should be partly cloudy and much cooler with lows in the upper 20s and west winds around 10 mph.
Thursday should be partly sunny in the morning, then become mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain or snow showers in the afternoon as a weak trough skirts to our north.
